A Christmas Concert in support of the new CD, "Jingle All The Way"
Christmas music is sprinkled liberally throughout this show. In addition to the
specific Christmas songs, they show up in both Victor's and Bela's solos as well as several other tunes.
There's some enjoyable interplay between the band during,
"Have Yourselves a Merry Little Christmas" when everyone
plays one note in the progression.
There really is a Hawaiian version of the "12 Days of
Christmas". The band borrows from that song for help in
this version. Bela also decribes how they will play each
day in a different time signature.
The audience at this venue tends to be very quiet. As a result, there is virtually no crowd noise during any of the songs; especially during the EXTREMELY quiet parts of Victor's solo. NOTE: the laughter in the audience that you hear during Victor's solo when the cell phone goes off is because of his reaction to the cell phone! His eyes widened and his face pointed to the offender!
Aloha from Maui and Mele Kalikimaka!

Great show, great set, great seeing them on Maui
This was my first Flecktones show. It was simply amazing. I was really excited to hear Sex In a Pan. You can hear me in the recording, I'm sorry, but I just couldn't hold it back. So funky. Bela's solo was one of the most beautiful things I have experienced at a concert. It was so great to see them live on Maui. It's been way too long without them. The quality is really great too, and I'd like to say Mahalo to the taper. You did an awesome job capturing this insane show. Victor threw in his Amazing Grace in his solo, and I enjoyed the Christmas songs too. Wow, The MACC show is the only thing available from this tour, I love it.
